So, there you are, sitting on the C-Train in Calgary when, BAM, outta nowhere, a group of guys breaks into music. And, it’s not just singing, we’re talking full band action here! But, this is not just any ordinary band of merry men! This is Jon Batiste and Stay Human. Jon Batiste is a pianist, singer, bandleader, composer and arranger, ‘Stay Human’ leader and the Artistic Director At Large for the National Jazz Museum in Harlem.
Batiste and friends were in Calgary to perform at EPCOR Centre’s Jack Singer Concert Hall on October 16th. As someone who plays Social Music, getting out and bringing the music to the people seems to be the Jon Batiste way. Looks like fun!
